    I've owned a J47-GT and J1A 2.2. Sizing is tough to compare IMO because the patterns are so different but the J1A is much roomier than the J47. A J58 underneath the 47 was always very tight with anything more than a tee base layer. I have plenty of room and movement with the 58 and J1a together.

    Not surprised the measurements are more like J69. The fit in product shots looks almost identical. Are you able to flip the collar over like with the 69 or is the collar too padded from the hood?

    The cut looks nearly identical to the J69 so from experience, the double zipper isn't an issue because it's cut so short. You also have the snap closure / plus escape zip if your'e sitting down. New storm hood mechanism looks incredible. Interesting that none of the product shots show the collar down when the hood is stowed. Where did you see that there were issues at the factory?

    You're in luck. J61 in Paclite coming FW1920.

    I spoke to UPS and gave the code 6201.99.8030 and my duties were reduced to $65. If you already paid duties though, it's extremely difficult to get them reduced. Few initial thoughts: Collar – I've liked the folded collar since they originally showed 2.2 with the 3A-1s, and it really is a great refinement. With the last J1A, I always ended up folding the collar over anyways. I don't like the collar up as much, as the collar seems really skinny and high, so its less proportional than previous J1A's, especially without the hood. Gravity Pockets –The redesigned gravity pockets are an improvement too. Much less in the way, and easier to open and close the zips. Zippers – I wonder why they decide to keep the shiny zippers vs. the matte zippers on other jackets (like J47). Aesthetically, I like both but the matte zippers feel way smoother to me. Fit – The sizes on the site were identical to the previous version but it seems a bit boxier. With a J58 underneath, I have much more radial movement than I recall with the last version. Although, it has been a couple years since I last owned it. Hood – Perfect. The shape is great, and it no longer has those flaps that the last version did. The flaps always bothered the hell out of me so I'm happy they got rid of them. I'm also able to get the hood over my head with the storm collar all the way zipped, which I've not always been able to do with other ACRNM jackets.

    Received mine today. I did find a QC sticker in each of the front pockets...

    Here's what I noticed: New hood New collar (This collar is also fundamentally different than even the J69, which doesn't include a collar stand) Second snap higher on the jacket (as they've done on many recent jackets like J47 / J69 / J66, etc.) Hidden snap at bottom of zip Black snaps (old ones were silver) Added back hitch tab (from OG version) Also first time I can recall them actually listing the models heights which is probably very useful for people new to the brand

    Has anyone washed any of the jackets with reverse raw edges (like the J66 or J69) yet? Curious if a wash increases the amount of fraying.

    Speaking of leaks...could be wrong but this seems to be a new insulator as seen on Erlsn's IG.

    Really depends on the fit of each Acronym jacket. My general rule is that I size up for Profile fitting jackets and stay with my regular size for Straight fitting jackets. J58 is tight in the chest because the fit is Profile and supposed to layer underneath shells.

    For anyone who is an XL, Kith still has a J47TS-GT in Black in store.

    I am 6'1 (185cm), and same weight as you. Not sure what my chest measurement is ATM but with "Straight" fit jackets, I have always worn a Medium. On recent "Profile" shells like J62-S and J69, I sized up to a Large. The J74 is the first time I sized up on a "Straight" fit jacket. I tried both M and L but the Large just seemed to drape way better. The way Umit is wearing the J74 is how the Medium fit me whereas the way Lenny is wearing the Medium is how the Large fits me if that helps.

    Re: J74 - I also noticed that the acrnm website lists the jacket as "STRAIGHT" fit but the Spec Sheet reads "PROFILE".
